After the somewhat lacking The Final Frontier, The Undiscovered Country manages to retain a new found vigor in storytelling in the franchise. I found this film to be the best since the Wrath of Kahn and it was a well crafted Science Fiction film that had a vibe that this one had ...

Captain Kirk and Bones are arrested for the assassination of the Klingon Chancellor during a diplomatic mission and so Spock and the rest of the crew of the Enterprise set about proving their innocence and preventing the outbreak of war. Very much preparing the ground for the cre...

Coming fresh off it's predecessor, it this film did not have to try at all in order to impress, and whether it gave it it's all or not, it is a far superior film in every way, and being in the early 90's, the visuals have clearly begun to become something fantastic! I am certain ...

So here we are with the sixth and final adventure with the legendary old classic crew and by far the best film of the six in personal opinion. Yes I will say it now, this film is my personal favourite out of all the Trek films including the next gen crew and the recent prequel.

I really wanted to like this last Star Trek movie, it's just not as good as the ones form the 80s, but at least it isn't as boring as the first movie. Overall it's just okay.

The final Star Trek film to feature all of the original cast is quite a doozy. From the very beginning, the Klingons have always been based on the Soviet Era Russians. This film closely (but in a fictionalized way) parallels history by echoing the fall of the Berlin Wall and the ...

The last Star Trek film with the complete original line up isn?t the best of send offs but its subject matter is probably the most original and fitting with the universal, multicultural and ?everyone?s welcome? feel of the cult following.

These last couple of movies were basically glorified episodes of a tv show. The middle movies were really fun, but this one was simply okay. A farewell movie to the cast for the most part. I like how Star Trek uses the same actors over and over but put them in different make up.

This has to be one of the best of the original star trek crew films. It's just excellent and so so underated. Everything that a Trek fan like me wants in a a Trek film; decent plot, script up-to scratch and just an all round excellent film. What's so grea...
